Setting up and running a charity – form

Charity trustee: declaration of eligibility and responsibility

Trustees of charities in England and Wales should complete and sign this form to confirm their eligibility to be a trustee.

Detail

Your charity’s trustees should complete and sign this form to confirm they:

  • are willing and eligible to act as trustees
  • understand their charity’s purposes
  • have passed any checks required if the charity works with children or vulnerable people

Send this form when you apply to register your charity with the Charity Commission. The form needs to be printed, signed by all trustees individually and then converted to PDF so that it can be uploaded when you apply to register online.

If your charity has more trustees, print another declaration form for the additional trustees to sign.
